security of the iranian government by being involved in house churches from 2001-2005, this is really old information as well. he's been back nine times, more than that since 2005. so, again, shocking to him. shocking to the family, but we knew there would be some sort of conviction at some point, and we just wish this lawyer had at least some information. he's shocked as well. >> where is the pastor tonight? >> the pastor is in a new ward of the prison, one of the toughest prisons in the world and especially inside of iran. people don't survive there. i keep telling the story in october, there was a blogger arrested a political blogger, by the way pastor saeed not involved this politics, not an incident, not trying to make a story, he was there to get bureaucratic signoff, follow the rules on his orphanage, we've talked about that before on fox. a blogger arrested and he was ted on the third. and the pastor, if he survives, that prison is a miracle in itself. and harris, they won't give it to him, he's unclean, a christian, won't give him pain medicine. >> harris: and i want to cut in an

conventions or places where hunters are gathering, they go where the government has said, you can't protect yourself. and it frustrates me because i have children in school. i work at, sometimes at places where guns aren't allowed and it puts me in the position of either flagrantly ignoring the law or obeying the law and putting myself at risk. >> mike: right now, the president, the vice-president, senator feinstein and others are proposing that we really crackdown on people who own guns in the capacity of magazines. and i mean, you've faced this firsthand with your own family. tell me what you think about the proposals, whether you think they're going be to be helpful to people like you or if you think it's going to be more-- advantageous to the criminal rather than to people like you. >> they're a joke. the only thing the gun laws like that do is prevent people like me from being able to protect ourselves. they do not affect people who are bent on doing harm in any way, shape or form. so, i find it very frustrating when they use such a horrible event as what happened in connecticut to try
